Kinetics of Particles

Part of the Dynamics course offered by the Division of Applied Mechanics, School of Engineering and the Engineering and Technology Portal


The application of particle kinematics to systems of forces is wholly dependent upon Newton's Second Law. Solutions to kinetics problems may be obtained by using Newton's Law directly, Work/Energy methods or through Impulse/Momentum calculations.
